Successful weekend for senior sides

The Singleton Roosters celebrated three memorable wins before a delighted home crowd this afternoon.

Former Muswellbrook Cat Corey Harris was welcomed in the winners’ circle for the Roosters’ following their 87-point win over Wyong Lakes.

The 20-year-old found three goals in the first half while fellow small midfielder Scott Moore landed his first goal in four years.

Harris joined the Roosters midweek after the Muswellbrook Cats cancelled their 2020 season due to Covid-19.

“I have played rep footy but other than that today was the first time I didn’t have a Muswellbrook jumper on me,” Harris said post-match.

“I’m hoping I stick around for the rest of the season now.”

Playing coach Jed Ellis Cluff and captain Cameron White were described as outstanding (in the absence of Andrew Scott) by club officials while Sam Brasington also finished with three goals.

“During the game the coach Jed was giving me a few pointers so I still have stuff to work on but I’ve enjoyed playing today,” Harris added.
